Even WVU’s coach had to high-five Boykin after ankle-breaking scramble

Sometimes in sports, you just have to tip your cap to a better player. Dana Holgorsen knows all about that.

The West Virginia head coach had no choice but to give a high-five to TCU’s Trevone Boykin after the quarterback pulled off an ankle-breaking scramble for a first down in their game Thursday. Watch it above.

Holgorsen’s quote about the matter also was pretty funny.

TCU won 40-10, while Boykin was 32 of 47 for 388 yards and three touchdown passes. He also rushed for 84 yards and a score.

There’s not much else you can do but give the man his props.
